When Saying I Love You Could Mean A Prison Sentence

15 Sep

Roger Jean-Claude Mbede just spent a year in prison and may spend two more for the apparently “heinous” crime of sending a text message to a man saying “I am very much in love w/u”. When I start thinking things are getting better, I get reminded that things are really still the same and people can be put in jail for something as harmless as such a text message.

Please sign the petition here. I just did.

      It really is. Life isn’t easy anywhere if you’re gay but in some places it’s just unimaginable

    Knowing myself, I would probably be in jail if I lived there.

      You’d be surprised at how good you would become at keeping yourself free from suspicion 🙂

        The importance of learning the science of discretion cannot be underestimated and most LGBT are quite skilled in Ghana. Cannot really go into the specifics in a blog though 🙂
